The Werribee Street, Werribee level crossing was removed in late January 2021 with a new rail bridge built over Werribee Street.
The rail bridge allows for both freight and passenger trains and is about one kilometre long.
Removing this level crossing improves travel for the 20,000 vehicles that travel through this crossing daily, which is a key connection between Werribee and Wyndham Vale.
With the level crossing now removed, construction will begin on new open spaces, public art and a skate park beneath the Werribee Street rail bridge.

If you’d like to receive text message project alerts about traffic and construction disruptions text Werribee to 0438 479 376.
On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 85 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
